Blind Sided by Love
I’m falling in love. I’ve never really been in love before. At least not like this. I’m finding myself smiling at the strangest times of day and giggling over the craziest things. The strangest thing about the whole deal is that I feel like I’ve been blind-sided by the whole experience…. Read More

Pockets
Wearing an insulin pump certainly comes with its fair share of issues. They aren’t enough to make me think of every NOT wearing one, but there are issues. Something that you nearly always hear from women insulin pumpers is how annoying it is to wear a dress AND an insulin pump. In fact, I can’t… Read More

D-Sick Day
I’ve written about the fine line between making people understand how complex and difficult living with diabetes is, while not letting them pity me or feel sorry for me. It is a never ending tightrope. I want to believe that I can do anything, in spite of diabetes. I DO believe that 99.999% of… Read More

Help Out One of My Most Awesome Readers
A few years ago I was seeing a play at a theatre near my home. It was full of kids, their annual “young person’s” production. While I was watching (and enjoying) the show, I spotted something sticking out from under the shirt of one of the kids. I looked a little closer and spotted an INSULIN… Read More

No More Shame
Miss Manners, There’s too much shame and stigma involved with diabetes. Some of it is external. Some of it is internal. But it is all very real to a person living with diabetes. People place blame on those living with diabetes. It must be your fault that you have diabetes. It must be your fault… Read More

Moving Mountains: Medtronic Diabetes Advocates Forum
Over the weekend I was invited by Medtronic to their 3rd Diabetes Advocate Forum. It was my first year attending. And I hope I did my best when tweeting the event (#MedtronicDAF) and now, as I share my thoughts with you all about what happened over the weekend. Full disclosure: Medtronic and Bayer… Read More

Happy New Year!!!! 2014 is upon us with so many new things coming up. In the past three months my life has been turned upside down on it’s head. I’ve had so many things happening in my life and so many major life changes that I haven’t had time to breath, let alone keep up with my blogs and social… Read More

Close to Home
Over the weekend I got a message on facebook from a friend of mine. One that isn’t linked to my “diabetes world.” We’ve known each other for a few years now, and met through mutual friends. He’s an awesomely fun person to hang out with, and a person I don’t get to see in person near often… Read More

Cereal: The Devil’s Food
“Hi. My name is Cara and I’m a cereal addict.” I feel like I should be in some sort of a recovery program. Ever since I started monitoring my blood sugar super closely and got on an insulin pump, it became apparent that cereal was a TERRIBLE thing for me. Non-sugar cereals make my blood… Read More

Strip Safely
Test strip accuracy is important to me because as a person with diabetes, I test my blood sugar. As a type 1 diabetic, I test my blood sugar sometimes as many as 12-15 times a day. True, with my constant glucose monitor (itself with accuracy issues) I sometimes test less. But no decision I make… Read More

Technology is Scary: A Skeptic Changes Her Mind
I was diagnosed with diabetes in 1986, a few months before my fifth birthday. I have very, very few memories of my life before diabetes. It’s just always BEEN. Diabetes has been a part of me so much, that I’m not entirely sure who’d I’d be without it. I’m throwing a wild guess out there… Read More

Sometimes It’s Who You Know
Every so often I go get fast food for breakfast. I know, I know. It’s not healthy. It’s not good for me. It’s not always good on my blood sugars. BUT, I do it. And I’m guessing that you probably do as well. I live in the same town I grew up in. I left for a while and ended up back here for… Read More

Opinions and Name Changes
Even though I’ve been slightly detached from the diabetes online community in the past several weeks, I’ve seen some talk about the petition going around that seeks support to have the names of T1 & T2 diabetes changed. This grabbed my attention almost immediately. I started searching around on… Read More

Six Years…and a Day.
I missed it again. I seem to miss it every year. Yesterday my blog turned six years old. I have a hard time wrapping my head around that. Six years is a long time to keep something up. I’ll admit, my blog and I have had our ups and downs. In fact, the past month or so, we’ve barely communicated…. Read More

Announcements
It’s all over the internet today. All over twitter and facebook. Probably all over media outlets (I wouldn’t know as I rarely watch television or pay attention to much news). The announcement that was hinted at yesterday, and release today from the Diabetes Research Institute.  I won’t lie. I had… Read More

Meet Penelope
So we all know that those of us in the D-OC like to name our medical devices. I’ve had the MiniMed Revel for a while now and this pump didn’t actually have a name. I’d named my old pump Lola, but this one hadn’t gotten a name yet. She’d been stubborn, and until I got her an outfit to wear, she… Read More

Scar Tissue Issue
I love that the title of this post rhymes. It kind of makes me laugh. And this little problem is one that I NEED to laugh at. Otherwise it makes me want to bawl my eyes out. Let me start at the beginning… Several months ago I started having infusion sets give me “NO DELIVERY” alarms quite a… Read More

Twenty-Seven
Twenty-seven. Twenty-seven. Twenty-seven. I’ve been mulling this word (these words?) over for a while now. I’ve used them for a while. But today is the official day. Twenty-seven years ago today I was rushed to the hospital in a nearby town and admitted to the hospital, where I would stay for… Read More

“Do No Harm” Does Harm
Tonight on NBC there is the series premiere of a new show called “Do No Harm.” I’ve known this show was coming for quite some time. In fact, I knew about it when they were filming the pilot, mostly due to the fact that one of my favorite Broadway actors is in the show. Turns out… Read More

“Non-Preferred”
So several months ago MiniMed made the announcement that they had teamed with Bayer to produce their new Link meter. Prior to that, they were teamed with Life Scan/One Touch. I’ve only been insulin pumping for six years, but during that time I’ve always had a link meter. Prior to the Life… Read More

Fourth Times a Charm?
I swear, sometimes diabetes just likes to raise a fuss. It does it in whatever way it can and causes as much trouble as possible in as short a span of time as possible. A couple of days ago my blood sugars starting running on the high side. I wasn’t sure why. It happens sometimes. But I dealt with… Read More

JDRF South Region T1D Symposium – 2013
Over the weekend I attended the JDRF South Region Symposium in Nashville. I was so blessed to get to go and I have so many things to share. This was the first Symposium of it’s kind that I’ve been to. And the first that Nashville and the South Region of JDRF has done. I’d personally like to see it… Read More

New Year with Diabetes
New Year with Diabetes : Striving for _______ in 2013. This is the topic for this month’s #DSMA Blog Carnival.

Just a Smoke Machine
I wear glasses. My doctor has told me several times that my vision problems aren’t diabetes related, just genetics luck of the draw. I do have some cloudiness that shows the start of cataracts on both of my eyes, but neither are affecting my vision. I do have some bleeding in both of my eyes, but… Read More

The World’s Worst Sick-O (Sick-y?)
I’m sick. Real people sick. Not super sick, but I’m feeling icky, coughing, hacking, can’t breath, sore throat, swollen eyes, etc. I felt bad enough (coupled with the fact that several members of my family that I spent time with over Thanksgiving have an upper respiratory infection) that I… Read More

Diabetes Blessings Week 2012
This is the time of year that we are supposed to be reminded of all of the blessings we have in our life. I have many. Even though it sometimes can be difficult to remember them all, God always has a way of dropping things or people in my life to remind me of how truly blessed I am. Diabetes has… Read More

Keeping It Stuck
The other day a fellow D-OC member posted something on facebook that another person was looking for ways to keep her daughter’s CGMS taped down as it kept getting ripped out. I have a very complex system. Really. 😉   But I wanted to share it and since I changed sensors this morning, I thought… Read More
